May Arts Ribbon Blog

I love decorating for holidays, but sometimes, I prefer to have decorations that are more generic and can hang up a bit longer. This banner is dedicated to spring and will last for several months. The letters can easily be switched out for a birthday or the 4th of July – whatever you want to say.

    Great banner. I like how each circle is tied together with ribbon and the glitter sets it off.
